Quotes

Seeing things pleasing to the eye is more and more about experiencing them and less about capturing a trophy of the moment. And in more and more moments, I sense through the camera a parting of some veil only to see beyond it yet another one. This is where I think the fog mimics the greater truth that each moment of clarity is nothing but a smiling invitation to a shrouding mist just beyond. Come forward it says, and with that encouragement, I do.” — Paul Van Slambrouck

“Once the experience occurs there is no longer a painting or a photograph, or a poem, there is only the experience. Is there any other way to reach the meaning of a T. S. Eliot, or a Dylan Thomas, or a Bach, or an Alfred Stieglitz?” — Carl Chiarenza (Aperture Vol 6. No.2 1958) From aransomephoto.com.
